I have not found any evidence that references to St. John as a Bishop. It might be more accurate to refer to him as St. John Damascene.{{unsigned|Gsarraf}} : You are right that he was not a bishop. However, the "of [place]" usage in English does not necessary refer only to episcopacy. There are multiple saints who were never bishops who are commonly known by such names, e.g., [[Columba of Iona]], [[Benedict of Nursia]], [[Anthony of the Kiev Caves]], [[Clement of Alexandria]], etc. &mdash;[[User:ASDamick|<font size="3.5" color="green" face="Adobe Garamond Pro, Garamond, Georgia, Times New Roman">Fr.
